With contributions from more than two dozen experts, this book demonstrates why visualizations are beautiful not only for their aesthetic design, but also for elegant layers of detail that efficiently generate insight and new understanding. Think of the familiar map of the New York City subway system, or a diagram of the human brain. These older examples have been surpassed by artists, designers, commentators, scientists, analysts, statisticians, and others who show how visualizations using today's digital capabilities can help us make sense of the world.
